Players that have been active on the platform and have played for a time are given the FACEIT Elo statistic by the website. In conclusion, the FACEIT Elo rating system demonstrates how skilled players are in a certain game. But, the FACEIT Elo is unrelated to any other Elo you may be familiar with. For instance, your FACEIT Elo won't be affected by your League of Legends Elo. This Elo system, which functions somewhat similarly to a leveling system, is the ideal approach to distinguish between various types of gamers. Only in FACEIT will you discover this, and only while you are on the server does it matter.
HOW DOES RANKING WORK IN FACEIT?

Counter-Strike:Global Offensive is a competitive shooter that almost every week reaches a record number of players who play this shooter. Of course, not a few players prefer playing Valve matchmaking. Dozens of players spend their CS:GO lives on the gaming platform called FACEIT. This is not surprising because it is convenient and compact for beginners as well as for experienced players. This is due to the convenient rating system between players, the so-called FACEIT ELO-points. We need to understand what this rating system is, how it works, and in general, what it is for.

 

Faceit rank distribution

 

FACEIT has its own ranking system that works differently than Valve’s one in CS:GO. Your skills on the platform are divided into levels - 1 through 10. To get the first rank, three matches must be played for calibration.

 

The player's level depends on the number of ELO-points. The system mathematically calculates the number of ELO-points a player gets for winning a match. If you lose a match, a certain number of points are removed. The average change of the ELO-rating is 25 points, with rare cases reaching up to 40 points. 

 

If a strong team loses to a weak team, the level shift for both teams will be higher. However, if the favorite wins over an underdog - less, it gets a lower rating. That's how the system of adding and subtracting rating works. The most remarkable thing is that players with a premium subscription to the service can see the whole history of changes in the points in their profile, while others can only see the final points. You can also view your current points statistics and see how much you need to upgrade on FaceitElo. Where your stats are detailed. 

 


 

Level change statistics on FACEIT

 

According to different players' personal and public experience, it is possible to calculate the number of victories needed to raise the level. Of course, this information does not show the whole truth, but it is as close to it as possible.

 

Level 1 - Level 2, you need to win 12-15 games in a row;

Level 2 - Level 3, you need to win 7-8 games in a row;

Level 3 - Level 4, you need to win 7-8 games in a row;

Level 4 - Level 5, you need to win 7-9 games in a row;

Level 5 - Level 6, you need to win 7-8 games in a row;

Level 6 - Level 7, you need to win 7-8 games in a row;

Level 7 - Level 8, you need to win 7-8 games in a row;

Level 8 - Level 9, you need to win 7-8 games in a row;

Level 9 - Level 10, you need to win 8-10 games in a row.

 

Again, the statistics are objective. It all depends on the number of ELO-points you get. Only sometimes, when you win, you can get 25 points. However, when you lose, the figure may be less. Unlike the ranking system in CS:GO, where Valve does not show a transparency of the ranking system, on FACEIT you are guaranteed to get a new level as soon as you have enough ELO-points.

The effect of the rating system (ELO-points)

 

Again, a more balanced system than in MM (matchmaking) allows you to pick opponents according to your current rating. Of course, there are cases when you get an opponent that is a little “noobish”. But this is a plus: you can learn more gimmicks and play smarter, to surprise and outplay your opponent. Even if one team is much stronger than the other in terms of ELO, they get less for winning than they lose, and vice versa.

Summary

 

To summarize, there are so many options to develop and progress in CS:GO, but it seems that Faceit is the perfect gaming platform, with full access to information and statistics. Its own rating system allows players to know how many matches they need to win to level up. And to raise your level, you need to: train your reflexes on maps with bots; learn weapon recoil; play on retake servers; etc. These skills will come in handy in any match, and of course, shoot without missing.
